Death Café | Trump’s Triumph in Georgia | The Breakroom
What is it about Donald Trump that made so many Georgia Republicans vote for him? We learn about a club that meets once a month to eat cake and talk about death. And the Breakroom is in the house, talking about weddings in the water and Atlanta's cat cafe.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hit it big in Georgia on Super Tuesday. He won across all demographic lines from the rich to the poor to the educated and uneducated. We talk with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s political reporter Greg Bluestein about what Trump’s Super Tuesday victory means for the party and Georgia voters. Plus, Trump’s win has created a deeper rift in the GOP. We talk with Will Kremer, who writes for GeorgiaPol.com, about loyal Republican voters who say they could never vote for Trump.
Every month, a group of people meet at the Oakland Cemetery to eat cake and talk about death. They’re not there to grieve but to break the stigma about death. It’s called Death Café Atlanta, and we speak with the founder and host Mark LaRocca-Pitts about why talking about our mortality helps us live life.
Then, the Breakroom panel celebrates Friday with a look back on some buzzworthy stories from the week including Chris Rock’s performance at the Oscars and a couple who tied the knot underwater at the Georgia Aquarium. Also, there’s a fur-friendly café coming to Atlanta. Cat lovers, rejoice! And Chic-Fil-A is making an attempt to revive dinner table togetherness with an effort to take cell phones out of the picture during meals. The Breakroom gang discusses these topics and more.
